Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres

£29.99

Product description

A distinguished artist of the first half of the nineteenth century, Ingres was the advocate of classicism in contrast to the romanticism of David. But he had more than one string to his bow (in fact he was a violinist of talent and the French term for having more than one string to your bow is 'violon d'Ingres') and he painted nudes, classical figures, historical compositions and many very striking portraits. This is a fine book illustrating his work with a penetrating analysis by one of the foremost art historians of his generation.

Thames and Hudson hardback with DJ. There is a defect of the middle part of the DJ overlying the spine and a library label on the front lower cover. The boards are textured blue/white with Ingres signature embossed in gilt and gild lettering to spine. There is damp staining of the lower part of the free edge of the rear cover but no other evidence of damp.. This is an ex-library book with a stamp on the reverse of the front cover and hand written classification on ffep and title page. Despite these drawbacks the body of the book is in excellent condition and, in particular, the 48 hand mounted colour illustrations and 142 black and white illustrations are excellent.
